No idea if this link will work but primed the engine today. I could start it if I could ever get the tmic piping on the turbo. For whatever reason it just won't slide on. still got that issue with the throttle cable.

Trying to figure out these 2 lines under the intake. They didn't effect the engine starting or idling at all. Are they for the upper coolant reservoir? I'm really not sure what they are for.

Because the coolant needs to be able to flow back and forth freely the cap will restrict it. The JDM radiator doesn't have a cap. Nice swap by the way! I'm glad I don't live in your neck of the woods...rust scares me!!

Thanks guys. This solves that issue. Now I can run the car. Now to drive it I need to fix my throttle cable issue. Will a 02 throttle cable do the trick? If i use the one i have the throttle will be held open about half way.
